Re: Kokanee/Sockeye fly patterns?
Not foul hooked. Hooked in the mouth, although probably "lined" as the hooks were in the outside of the mouth. Still, one pattern worked while the others did not, so......
Anyway, to answer your question, I was using 6X tippet. Very clear, fall water and so I thought they might be leader shy. I had no idea they would take off like jets with the afterburner on high either! LOL!
